Short breaks & respite care

We offer short breaks and respite care within our luxury care homes.

Whether you care for a loved one and need some time out to recharge your batteries, or you'd like a little extra support yourself following a period of illness, our short breaks give you the opportunity to do just that.

Respite care or short breaks with Hamberley give people the opportunity to recover from an illness or operation or enjoy a holiday away from home with full support from our Homemakers, Nurses and Wellbeing colleagues.

During a short break with us, guests benefit from the following:

  • Accommodation in our spacious and beautiful en-suite rooms
  • Restaurant-style dining and access to all of the wonderful facilities available within our luxury care homes throughout the UK, including a wellbeing & beauty salon, the deluxe cinema, and a café to spend time with family and friends
  • A personalised wellbeing programme
  • Blood pressure, weight and BMI checks

Many individuals who stay with Hamberley Care Homes for a short break decide to return for long-term care in the future.

What training do your staff receive?

All members of our team are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care. 

In addition to the statutory training that all care workers have to complete, we also ensure our staff receive bespoke Hamberley specific training in areas that we feel will help staff to provide an outstanding care experience.

What is a Homemaker?

A Homemaker is a ‘universal worker’ role which means our Homemakers are carers, housekeepers and companions all in one. Hamberley’s Homemakers get to know each and every resident, so they understand precisely how to make their lives more content based on their unique wants and needs.

  • Homemakers provide care and support for our residents, including administering medicine under the guidance of our clinical team
  • Homemakers take care of the general day to day housework
  • Homemakers offer companionship and take an interest in the lives of our residents, supporting them with their choice of lifestyle and wellbeing

Our Homemaker model makes the experience for residents a lot more like living in their own home. Within a family environment typically everyone shares responsibility for looking after each other and this creates a really nurturing, caring space. In many care homes, this feeling or attitude is lost - in Hamberley homes, we have genuine home-like communities where people want to live and work.

This model of  care also means that residents have the best chance of experiencing truly person centred care – support that is tailored to their individual needs.
